ADM Alliance Nutrition Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Archer Daniels Midland Company, will build a new feed premix plant in Effingham, Illinois, USA, with enhanced processes and controls to meet safety standards for petfood premixes and specialty blends.
The new facility, expected to be fully operational in early 2014, will incorporate stainless steel conveyances and processing equipment, with automation enabling real-time tracking of every ingredient through bar coding and lot controlled numbering systems. The new facility will be located adjacent to the company’s warehouse and will replace its existing premix manufacturing plant in Effingham.
“As animal feed safety regulations evolve, this new facility will position Alliance Nutrition at the forefront of the industry, with one of the most advanced premixing facilities in the world,” said Chuck Loefer, general manager, petfood premixes and specialty blending division. “We will be using the latest equipment and automated processes to help ensure product quality and safety.”
